Cased Wound Badge in Silver

Description

Wound Badge in Silver (Verwundeten Abzeichen in Silber) that comes in its original box of issue. With the outbreak of World War 2, on 1 Septembert 1939, Hitler re-instituted a slightly modified version of the wound badge by altering the WWI pattern helmet on the badge to the newly designed M35 style helmet. The badge was awarded to both military and uniformed non-military personnel and later, (March 1943), to civilian personnel who received wounds as a result of enemy actions. The early tombak (Buntmetall) badge is not visible maker marked but can be attributed to production by the 'Hauptmünzamt' in Wien (Vienna). Of course are the pin and catch fully functional. The badge comes in its matching bordeaux-red coloured box, the box is showing some normal small damages and usage on the corners and is in overall good used condition. The box is complete with original label of the company 'Hauptmünzamt, Wien'. Nice original set in good condition!
